Four peice, jazz/funk outfit hailing from West Fargo. The group, consisting of members from the pop punk group Copouts, The, changed their name to Ecotrip after the addition of guitar player Ryan Babb. A new, albeit strange, direction in sound was taken thereafter (a combination of rock, funk and electronica). One of the first groups in Fargo's late 90's "pseudo-Jamband" scene. Other cohorts: Greenhouse, Sunny Travels.
- Jamie Thompson (guitar, vocals, percussion)
- Ryan Babb (guitar, percussion)
- Brandon Warner (bass, percussion)
- Chuck Werner (drums)
